Table toppers, Kings XI Punjab have surprised one and all with their performance so far in the season. They have won 7 out of their 8 matches played so far and all those wins have been a comfortable ones. They have defeated the most consistent team of IPL, i.e Chennai Super Kings not once but twice in this season. KXIP will be hoping to maintain their winning momentum and their table top position with a comfortable win against Kolkata Knight Riders today.
On the other hand, Kolkata who are placed at the 5th spot in the points table are coming into this match with an emphatic 8 wicket win over Delhi Daredevils. Though they would be hoping to control Maxwell and Millar today but their loss to KXIP despite restricting them to 132 in their previous match would be still fresh in their mind.
